Your concern for the welfare of Muslims is touching.
The reality is that China is an empire with the Han enslaving other peoples including the Tibetans and the Uighurs.
I think the chi-comms should give the Uighurs their country back (East Turkestan or Xinjiang depending on who you ask), but the Uighurs need to do it by themselves
Hereditary bondsmen! know ye not
Who would be free themselves must strike the blow?
As the great John Quincy Adams admonished us so long ago,
Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom

No worries there. I think I’ve been inside a Walmart exactly twice in my life, and have no particular desire to repeat the exercise.

Was it a mistake for the U.S. to allow China to join the World Trade Organization? Assessments of the 2001 deal often determine positions in today’s bitter trade debate.
oddly (or maybe deliberately) the WSJ article doesn't mention Chinagate, the 1996 scandal where the chi-comms colluded with BJ Clinton and algore to ensure that CLinton won reelection.
The quid pro quo was allowing the chi-comms into the WTO, which destroyed the US manufacturing base
Calls for an independent counsel
FBI Director Louis Freeh
President Clinton's FBI Director Louis Freeh wrote in a 22-page memorandum to then Attorney General Janet Reno in November 1997 that "It is difficult to imagine a more compelling situation for appointing an independent counsel."
In July 1998, the Justice Department's campaign finance task force head, Charles La Bella, sent a report to Janet Reno also recommending she seek an independent counsel to investigate alleged fund-raising abuses by Democratic party officials. The media reported that La Bella believed there was clearly an appearance of a conflict of interest by Reno. In his report to Reno he wrote: " [A] pattern [of events] suggests a level of knowledge within the White House—including the President's and First Lady's offices—concerning the injection of foreign funds into the reelection effort." Additionally, La Bella stated: "If these allegations involved anyone other than the president, vice president, senior White House or DNC and Clinton-Gore '96 officials, an appropriate investigation would have commenced months ago without hesitation."

Robert Conrad, Jr., who later became head of the task force, called on Reno in Spring 2000 to appoint an independent counsel to look into the fund-raising practices of Vice President Gore.
Janet Reno declined all requests
